Post subject:  Marie Antoinette Fashion Project---NEED HELP

Hello everyone! This is the very first time I have been on this site. Let me introduce myself...I'm Stephanie and I'm the leader of a school group I'm in for my history class. I, along with three other groupmates, are doing a history project on fashion associated with Marie Antoinette. So, we're covering almost everything regarding her which includes her HAIR, SHOES, DRESSES, and ACCESSORIES. So, if any of you can help that would be amazing. We're just looking for descriptions and high resolution pictures for our PowerPoint, since the ones in the gallery are a bit small.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP.

one of her most famous outfits was her hair with the fake birds in it.

Here is a lovely website full of Marie Antoinette pictures from the most recent movie about the queen herself.... :D ...The pictures are mostly for the costumes but you still get great shots of her hair too... :wink:

Just click on the link (label) under the picture and you will be given a wonderful bunch of rather large and very detailed pictures from the movie...mostly for the costumes than for the scenes.

Hope this helps.... :D

Probably the best source for high resolution pictures of Marie Antoinette are the photo albums in my yahoo groups.

The main group is Images of Marie Antoinette
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Images_of ... ntoinette/

That group has discussion, plus links, files and polls.

But beyond that group, I have a series of sister groups
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Images_of ... toinette2/
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Images_of ... toinette3/
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Images_of ... toinette4/
onward to 12.

Each of those sister groups has its own photo albums with nothing but pictures of Marie Antoinette.

There are in the main group and groups 2,3 and 6 images of the Queen in film - however these are mostly from the 1938 film and French films on MA that I prefer - very few are on the current film. All the rest of the photo albums are loadede with images of MA I've collected 100s of them - all depictions of the Queen from real life or in later times but intended as true to life images of her - both as Queen, as fashionable lady and in scenes of her life, mostly alone, but others with her family and friends.

The drawback in my groups is lack of commentary on the pictures.

For the best group with authentic pics plus commentary, I suggest Claudia's group -
http://www.ladyreading.net/marieantoinette/

Though Claudia's group gives more commentary on far fewer pics - that commentary is about origins of the pics and not the pics themselves.

For the best commentary that I think you want FASHION commentary, I suggest you go to the library and get Caroline Weber book QUEEN OF FASHION - all about MA's fashions

Good luck.

Axel

PS - When you finish you powerpoints, you are most welcome to post them in "Files" with my main yahoo group Images of Marie Antoinette - love to get new contributions to that.
